Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month, when Feeding America and member food banks, including the Weinberg Regional Food Bank, ask everyone in America to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more in your community than ever before. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can solve hunger.

Last year, over 8 million pounds of food was given to our neighbors in need.

You can help! Here are a few ideas for getting involved:

Employee Dress Down Day – ask your employees to donate to the Food Bank in exchange for a dress down day. We recommend you wear orange, the color of hunger awareness. Our Hunger Action Month t-shirts are available for sale as part of your dress down day – contact below for order information.

Host a Virtual Food Drive – make it a contest between departments or locations to see who can have the greatest impact.

Bring a group of employees for a Hunger 101 session - a simulation of what it is like to struggle to feed your family, followed by a tour of the Center for Healthy Living and a volunteer activity.

Host a volunteer day/night at the Food Bank - invite your employees and their families to come out and see what the Center for Healthy Living is all about.


Will you get involved? Contact Gretchen, ghunt@ceopeoplehelpingpeople.org or 570-826-0510 ext. 275 to let us know how you will support Hunger Action Month and fight hunger in Northeast Pennsylvania.


virtualWhy use the Virtual Food Drive?

Your donation goes further on the Virtual Food Drive! Thanks to the Food Bank's wholesale purchasing power and efficient distribution model, a gift made here provides more food than through a traditional food drive —– doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can provide at the grocery store. Your donation will help us purchase more of our most-needed food items, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and other sources of protein like peanut butter, and even fresh dairy products.
